Apple is the world's most iconic company. It creates products that people fall in love with - and then markets them with spectacular success. Ken Segall has been behind much of that marketing for many years. He created the 'i', encouraged us to 'Think Different', and in the process played a key role in Apple's resurrection. Now he gives us a rare insight into one of the core principles that drive's Apple's success: simplicity. Inspired by Steve Jobs, this is an obsession that starts at the top of Apple and cascades throughout the entire global organization.
It dictates the way Apple is structured, the way it innovates and the way it speaks to its customers. Simplicity is a guideline, a style, a goal and a measuring stick. In "Insanely Simple" Ken brings the principles of simplicity to life in the context of milestone moments in Apple history.
He explains how the religion of simplicity led Apple to enter new markets and humble competitors many times its size. And he provides principles that readers can use in their own careers and companies. We can all learn something from Apple. The power of simplicity can help anyone stand out in a complicated world.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
